The Children of Abraham


How the quiz works

You are presented with 5 or 10 quotations originating from The Torah (Judaism), The New Testament (Christianity) or The Quran (Islam). For each quote you have to guess from which book the quote originates.

You can fill in the form with your e-mail and name to collect points to get higher ranking on the score list. Your name (but not email) can be seen on the score list. You can chose to receive our newsletter which we send out once a month. You can unsubscribe it with a click.

How you find the answer, is indifferent to us. The thought behind the quiz is that participants get more knowledge about the different religions.

Good Luck!

Questions and Answers

Can I change my name and group on the score list? Yes. You change your name, city, group and country AND keep your points. Just take the quiz test and submit your results under the SAME mail but with different name etc!

What is 'a group'? The group box can be used as an easy recognizable marker, e.g. for local competitions. By writing ‘London Elementary School’, ‘Priests in Copenhagen’, ‘A9’ etc., you can easily compare a group’s results in the quiz. On the score lists’ the search box you can isolate letters and names, and choose only to see people from your group, country etc.

Where do the quotations come from?The quotes are respectively ‘light’ and the ‘dark’ citations from The Jewish Torah (the 5 Books of Moses), The Christian Bible (The New Testament) and The Islamic Quran.
